I had originally intended to add a second pair of overheads to the session as a safety measure, but as soon as I heard the TC25s by themselves in the control room, I dropped that idea. If I had to, I could have lived with the sound from just those two mics. The sound of the kit was detailed and focused. I could hear every nuance.

Earthworks microphones all seem to share a special character when it comes to transient detail, and the TC25 omni mics supplied here are no exception. Rigged as conventional spaced mics above an average jazz-oriented drum kit, they delivered a pleasing, natural, and spacious sound, with lots of subtle transient detail and finesse.

Hugh Robjohns, Sound on Sound

The first thing we noticed about the sound of the TC25s versus our usual mics was that the attack was much crisper and clearer, especially on cymbals. The stick sound had an almost 3-D quality, while the cymbals’ resonance was smoother and more realistic. And the snare and toms sounded more natural and livelier.
